Not effective with all locos - profile too raised to allow smooth transit

Hornby R8244 OO Gauge Remote Uncoupler Unit

The one sample I checked needed the weight to be re-glued as it was not fully in position. I think I will have to modify the design to get it to work with Fleischmann Profi couplings, but I am hopeful.

Hornby does not indicate that you cannot pass an engine over the uncoupler but only carriages. Hence cannot use units I have purchased.Not Track Shacks fault but it would help if they added my comments to the product.
